2019 WGC-Mexico Championship report: What happened at Chapultepec?

World No. 3 Dustin  Johnson continued his stunning 2019 form as he won his sixth WGC title and 20th PGA Tour title with a five-shot victory over Rory McIlroy.

It was largely a two-horse race over the weekend, with the Northern Irishman proving to be Johnson’s only real challenger, and even he finished way back.

After holding a four-shot lead going into Sunday’s play, Johnson wasn’t really made to sweat it.

McIlroy failed to make the most of the leader’s wobbly start which saw him bogey the 3rd, and by the time they finished the 6th the gap was five.

The challenge was all but over when McIlroy found himself in trouble behind a tree…

But it was after the turn when this round really came alive for both players.

McIlroy shot 5-under-par in his closing nine holes, which most weeks would be more than enough to snatch a victory from 2nd place.

But DJ is no amateur and thanks to some impressive wedge play, he closed out with a back-nine of 5-under to ensure a comfortable win.

DJ still has a long way to go to catch up with Tiger though…

Thanks to this week’s triumph and the workings of the Official World Golf Rankings, DJ will return to World No. 1 following next week’s tournaments.

A special shout out to Justin Thomas who truly tore it up on Sunday shooting 62.

The American, who had the Genesis Open title snatched away from him by JB Holmes a week ago, was not able to contest over the first three days, but his final round was incredible.
